Meet David G Pullar

Meet the author of our book Wee Bessie.

David G Pullar is a prefessional gardener from Montrose, since the age of 16 David has been showcasing the histories, traditions and customs of Scotlands travelling people.
The great grandson of much celebrated Traveller Betsy Whyte has found inspiration in her work and life, especially her connection with nature.

David says- with the wonderful stage production of the Yellow on the Broom by Anne Downie and the song of the same name by Adam McNaughtan and having personally staged exhibitions, festivals and written a song dedicated to my Granny Bessie I though what better way to keep her story alive and celebrate what would have been her 100th birthday than with a childrens picture book.
So Wee Bessie was born, bringing the life of a Scottish Traveller to a new and younger audience, a first in Scotland.
